    ... The NLLFS employs a convenience sample, recruited entirely by self-selection from announcements posted ‘‘at lesbian events, in women’s bookstores, and in les-bian newspapers’’ in Boston, Washington, and San Francisco. While I do not wish to downplay the significance of such alongitudinal study—it is itself quite a feat—this sampling approach is a problem when the goal (or in this case, the practicalresult and conventional use of its findings) is to generalize to a population. All such samples are biased, often in unknownways. As a formal sampling method, ‘‘snowball sampling is known to have some serious problems,’’ one expert asserts (Snij-ders, 1992,p. 59). Indeed, such samples are likely biased toward ‘‘inclusion of those who have many interrelationships with,or are coupled to, a large number of other individuals’’ (Berg, 1988, p. 531). But apart from the knowledge of individuals’inclusion probability, unbiased estimation is not possible. ...
    Self selection is a potential problem. Sample size not so much.

    Animals cannot enter into legal contracts. Next?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Bestiality and other practices that are not SSM are irrelevant to SSM. Legally and practically the arguments are different.

    Oh yes it is a problem.
    If your sample is garnered from a naturally small sample of lesbian couples, for example ... and it consists of eager beavers, excuse the expression, who are out to make it clear that everything is hunky dory ... then, yeah, it's a problem.
